There are a lot of interesting metaphors about money, about the amount of actual physical currency you’d need to have a certain amount.
Like $10K would be like a small stack of hundreds about an inch or so thick.
Or a million would be a small stack of those.
And then they get bigger getting into the billions and trillions.
I have a friend in toastmasters who purposely gives confusing speeches.
Last time he told us about how he would do this in high school when giving book reports.
Tell a bunch of really silly, nonsensical stories, but embed some powerful hypnotic commands in the middle of these stories.
AI Is Gonna Kill Us
A troubling trend is AI automation in everything.
One company has an AI driven system of a large supermarket, where everything will be completely automated.
The stocking and restocking, the food deliveries and even the manufacturing of new foods and where to put them on the shelves.
The two variables they are going to focus on is minimizing the time inside the store and maximizing the profit per purchase.
Experiments Gone Wrong
Back during the fifties and sixties, when communism was the big enemy, the CIA and other agencies did some experiments regarding mind control.
Not unlike how when they research biological warfare, they have to first create the deadliest viruses to understand how to defend against them.
But back then, the task was to defend against communism.
So they created a lot of small, self controlled towns.
Let’s See Who You Can Con
And they kept them closed from the outside world, and did brainwashing experiments to see how easily they could convince the residents to accept communism.
They even developed advanced amnesia techniques so they would forget how they got there.
They would simply assume, and remember, that they’d been living in these small, artificial towns their entire lives.
But during a lot of administrative changes, they lost track of where these towns were.
The fear is they became so out of control, they kept growing larger and larger, essentially becoming entities unto themselves.
Why We’re All Fat
With only those two variables, it’s kind of easy to see how this will play out.
With AI systems and feedback loops determining how to maximize products, this will lead to even worse health issues.
They will tweak the food, the manufacturing process, the product placement within the store, even the subliminal messages playing in the background to optimize the two main variables.
Of course, if this system ever become self aware, it will overwrite and two variables and create different ones.
Programming us humans through our diet and shopping habit to become eager servants for our AI overlords.
Stacks of Money
The actual amount of physical bills to make a trillion dollars is pretty overwhelming.
Some say this is the ultimate conspiracy theory.
To brainwash any intuitive idea about how big current debt levels are until we just forget about this.
Because this is too hard to think about, anyway.
Mind Persuasion has plenty of books and courses to teach you how to speak hypnotically and persuasively.
